ABSTRACT

In the present study, an effort has been made to investigate the level of organizational commitment in police personnel. A 3×2 factorial design with three levels of job hierarchy (i.e., officers, sub inspectors & constables) and two levels of job tenure (i.e., short job tenure & long job tenure) was used. A total of 240 police employees were randomly selected from various police stations of Eastern U.P. Organizational commitment scale (Allen & Meyer, 1990) was used to determine the level of organizational commitment in employees.
Results revealed that the extent of organizational commitment varied significantly in various group of police employees. Affective commitment was found greater in officers than sub – inspectors and constables respectively .Whereas, normative commitment was found greater in officers and sub-inspectors as compared to constables.  Long job tenure group reported high level of normative commitment as compared to short job tenure group .Overall organizational commitment was found maximum in officers as compared to sub-inspectors and constables. Long job tenure group reported high level of overall commitment as compared to short job tenure group. Interaction effects of job hierarchy and job tenure on normative and overall organizational commitment were also found. Results have been discussed in the light of individual and organizational factors.
